What are thou Big Data? Asked the SQLBI Arbiter

Over the last few days, I’ve been pinged the question:

What is Big Data?

Go figure, I actually have an answer of sorts – from a SQL BI perspective (since that’s my perspective, eh?!)

There are two blog posts that go with the above slides that provide the details. Concerning the concepts of Scaling Up or Scaling Out, check out Scale Up or Scale Out your Data Problems? A Space Analogy.

Antennae Galaxies

Concerning the concepts of data movement, check out Moving data to compute or compute to data? That is the Big Data question.
